Harriet's Magic Hats

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Harriet's Magic Hats was a Canadian television series created by ACCESS TV which aired in Alberta on ACCESS TV[1][2] from 1980–1986.

The premise of the show was that an aunt named Harriet has a trunk full of magic hats in her attic. When her young niece wears a hat from the trunk she is transported to a place related to the hat. For example, if she wore a chef's hat from the trunk, the girl was transported to a kitchen with professional chefs, where she would learn about the profession. The show was 15 minutes long, and gave children a diverse view of the working world.
